Miniland Scale Clothes Washer

Name of Model: Washing Machine

Front-loading washing machines sound easy enough to build until you realize how difficult it is to build the round front at a decent scale. A simple studs-not-on-top technique handles it here - if you look closely, you'll notice that the bottom of this model is assembled with the studs on top of the LEGO bricks facing downwards. A 3x3 dish element on a pole fits nicely with the arches to complete the front-loading mechanism. The result is a bit too large for minifigs, but is at a decent scale for Miniland, Scala, or Belville people. For those of you trying to build this at home (you know your dollhouse needs one!), take a close look at the photo I've featured here and make sure you have enough of the 'Bracket 1 x 2 - 1 x 4' element on hand.
